Akshay Kumar and Aishwarya Rai are all geared up for the completion of their first comedy together, ‘Action Replayy’ which took a bit too long for completion.
Talking about this being his first stint with Ash in comedy, Akshay said, “It is my fifth film with director Vipul Shah and definitely another one to remember. Ash and I had a brief romantic interlude in Rajkumar Santoshi`s Khakee, but Action Replayy is our first romantic comedy together. Believe me, I was blushing through the making,” Akshay said in a statement.
“There`s a lot I wish to tell my audience about. But Vipul wants me to keep things under wraps for the moment. It`s a very special film for me for many reasons. This is my tribute to the 1970s that was the greatest retro era. I was kicked with the idea because I`m entering the time in cinema where my father-in-law was a superstar,” added Akshay.
This all in all light romantic comedy revolves around Kishen and Mala – two bickering senior citizens who go on a rewind mode on their 33rd wedding anniversary only to rediscover their lost romance.
Director Vipul Shah said, “Akki (Akshay) and I have an impeccable box office record. We enjoyed success with Aankhen, Waqt – Race Against Time, Namastey London and Singh is Kinng. “Action Replayy is a film where the two of us return after a gap of almost three years. And believe me, it is a great way to return.
For me, it was an exciting experience because I could bring together Aishwarya and Akshay, a pair I had been wanting to cast for sometime now. They`re both good looking, super-talented and what`s more, they`re fashion icons as well. Akki has made an amazing screen pair with some of the existing girls but believe me, he and Ash are extra special.”
